A performance by Marie-Agnès Gillot and Dimitri Chamblas, music by Bertrand Bonello.
A man and a woman are lying on the floor. All at once, they stand up and head in improvised directions. Here there are no sudden jolts, every angle is polished, accents have been erased, the difficulty disguised. Above all, this duo is a relationship with time. More than dance, time is the truly precise element here. It is stretched, and ticks to the rhythm of a minimalist, faraway pulse. This stifled sense of time is what unites the two dancers, what enables them to be with each other. The dance doesn’t move. It is set like a fixed point that redistributes space.
The creators of this project intended the duo to be used as material for other artists. As a result, the project has gone from the Palais Garnier to an art studio, a gallery exhibit, recorded in films and printed in photographic series.
Bye Studio accompanies the performance at every new invitation it receives.
